Dish Network seeks FCC permission to test 600MHz spectrum in two cities for 5G use
Dish wants to test 5G Carrier Aggregation using 600MHz spectrum in two cities
The report says that Dish plans on building a nationwide 5G network using 600MHz, AWS-4, 700MHz E Block, AWS H Block, and 800MHz. The company faces a deadline with some real-life consequences. To help the T-Mobile acquisition of Sprint get approved by the FCC and the Justice Department, Dish agreed to become the “fourth nationwide facilities-based network competitor” replacing Sprint. Once those regulatory agencies were satisfied that Dish would eventually replace Sprint, they greenlit the T-Mobile-Sprint merger.
